The Church Anthem Book

The Rev George T Wright, BD, St Serf’s, Edinburgh

George T. Wright contributes a long and defensive review of the Book, which he hails as requiring courage on the part of the Editors, the Public Worship Committee and of those choir-masters who introduce it. He dismisses many criticisms as misplaced and provides reasoned arguments against others in the light of the intended purposes of its compilers, which are to provided a standard of musical worthiness for all anthems sung in our churches and to make available a body of anthems (extraordinarily cheaply) of varying schools and degrees of difficulty.
